Adding Lithium to the Water – Brave New World

Drug Our Drinking Water

Why We Should Reject This

Lithium is a much more powerful substance than fluoride, with far greater potential side effects. Critics say that drugging the water is a massive infringement and equate this use of pharmaceuticals to something out of Aldous Huxley’s dystopic classic “Brave New World.”

Robert Carton, a former senior scientist for the EPA, argues that the government’s fortifying drinking water with any substance, even fluoride, violates people’s fundamental right—codified in the Nuremburg Code—to give informed consent to any medical intervention. “All ethical codes for the protection of individuals who are subject to medical procedures,” Carton wrote in the International Journal of Occupational and Environmental Health, “whether research or routine medical treatment, endorse the basic requirement for voluntary informed consent.”

Weapons Used in Illegal Iraqi War Causing Birth Defects

Deformed babies in Fallujah Iraq

Young women in Fallujah in Iraq are terrified of having children because of the increasing number of babies born grotesquely deformed, with no heads, two heads, a single eye in their foreheads, scaly bodies or missing limbs. In addition, young children in Fallujah are now experiencing hideous cancers and leukaemias. These deformities are now well documented, for example in television documentaries on SKY UK on September 1 2009, and on SKY UK June 2008. Our direct contact with doctors in Fallujah report that:

In September 2009, Fallujah General Hospital had 170 new born babies, 24% of whom were dead within the first seven days, a staggering 75% of the dead babies were classified as deformed.

This can be compared with data from the month of August in 2002 where there were 530 new born babies of whom six were dead within the first seven days and only one birth defect was reported.

Doctors in Fallujah have specifically pointed out that not only are they witnessing unprecedented numbers of birth defects but premature births have also considerably increased after 2003. But what is more alarming is that doctors in Fallujah have said, “a significant number of babies that do survive begin to develop severe disabilities at a later stage”.

As one of a number of doctors, scientists and those with deep concern for Iraq, Dr Chris Burns-Cox, a British hospital physician, wrote a letter to the Rt. Hon. Clare Short, M.P. asking about this situation. She wrote a letter to the Rt. Hon.Douglas Alexander, M.P. the Secretary of State of the Department for International Development (a post she had held before she resigned on a matter of principle in May 2003 ) asking for clarification of the position of deformed children in Fallujah.

Verichip Granted License to Patent Implantable Virus Detection Systems in Humans

VeriChip shares jump after H1N1 patent license win

Shares of VeriChip Corp (CHIP.O) tripled after the company said it had been granted an exclusive license to two patents, which will help it to develop implantable virus detection systems in humans.

The patents, held by VeriChip partner Receptors LLC, relate to biosensors that can detect the H1N1 and other viruses, and biological threats such as methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, VeriChip said in a statement.

The technology will combine with VeriChip’s implantable radio frequency identification devices to develop virus triage detection systems.

The triage system will provide multiple levels of identification — the first will identify the agent as virus or non-virus, the second level will classify the virus and alert the user to the presence of pandemic threat viruses and the third level will identify the precise pathogen, VeriChip said in a white paper published May 7, 2009.

Shares of VeriChip were up 186 percent at $3.28 Monday late afternoon trade on Nasdaq. They had touched a year high of $3.43 earlier in the session.

Swine Flu Vaccine Consists of Cancerous Animal Cells

Does virus vaccine increase the risk of cancer?
The swine flu vaccine has been hit by new cancer fears after a German health expert gave a shock warning about its safety.

Lung specialist Wolfgang Wodarg has said that there are many risks associated with the vaccine for the H1N1 virus.

He has grave reservations about the firm Novartis who are developing the vaccine and testing it in Germany. The vaccination is injected “with a very hot needle”, Wodarg said.

The nutrient solution for the vaccine consists of cancerous cells from animals and “we do not know if there could be an allergic reaction”.

But more importantly, some people fear that the risk of cancer could be increased by injecting the cells.

The vaccine – as Johannes Löwer, president of the Paul Ehrlich Institute, has pointed out – can also cause worse side effects than the actual swine flu virus.

Wodrag also described people’s fear of the pandemic as an “orchestration”: “It is great business for the pharmaceutical industry,” he told the ‘Neuen Presse’.

Swine flu is not very different from normal flu. “On the contrary if you look at the number of cases it is nothing compared to a normal flu outbreak,” he added.

The chairman of the health committee in the European Council has urged for a careful and calm reaction to the virus.

Up until now, the producers of the vaccine did not know how many orders they would have by the autumn, but the German Government is now a guaranteed customer.

Even the pharmaceutical companies are trying to exploit the fear of the swine flu pandemic.

Death from Cancer of a Misogynist Mindset

It was a year ago today that my friend Serena left this world for the next. I had visited her earlier that day. Even then she was already gone from this place. She had lain motionless for many days but the warmth of her hand in mine gave proof to her physical presence.

She was moved into the social room three weeks earlier when her hospital team assured that death was drawing near. “It will be tonight or tomorrow”, we we’re told, with the suggestion to call anyone who wanted to see her one last time.

Initially the room was abuzz with friends and family but the visits and visitors became less as she lingered in an emaciated, fetid body long beyond what anyone, especially her doctors, imagined possible. Only her parents were persistently present until the very end, living with her in her room. It was her mom who taught the nurses how to properly care for her daughter, how to change her dressings and clean her without causing too much distress to her painful body.

With the deepening of the disease and the amount of narcotics given in an effort to quell her pain, she wasn’t fully conscious, at least not to our sensibilities. I’d sit by her bedside and watch her face, trying to comprehend where she was retreating to, while recalling the late night conversations we use to have into the early morning hours. Now she was quiet. I could see through the slight opening in her mouth that her tongue had turned ashen white. It had the appearance of a pumice stone, shriveled and hard from lack of moisture.

It was frustrating not being able to talk, but one day I realized we could still communicate, without our tongues. On that day she told me that she was scared, that she did not want to die. This was evident to all of us who we were astonished at her tenacity in holding on for dear life. The doctors were confounded at how she was managing to survive despite her deteriorating condition.

It had been weeks since she had received nourishment yet she continued breathing and struggling to stay alive. At times it looked as if she was gritting her teeth to prevent her last breath from escaping her body. Serena had once fasted for 52 days – until she reached 106 pounds – the weight that a former lover whom she still pined for told her was ideal for her stature. Her ability to forgo food for a prolonged period may have been a contributing factor in her staying power.

While sitting with her in the hospital, and for months following her death, comments that she had made to me, floated back into focus. Pieces of a seemingly cryptic puzzle started to fit together into a plausible reason why such a vibrant person left her life in what seemed a sudden, inexplicable manner, at 56 years of age.

Serena, who as a young woman was married to a famous Chilean rock star, was physically attractive. She seldom painted her face, nor did she ascribe to the glamour or fashion notion of beauty. She did however, cover the silver that infiltrated her brown hair and dressed youthfully. Like many women, she didn’t want age to steal her beauty. One day – her dark eyes looking troubled – she told me that men did not look at her the way they use to. “When I lived in Hawaii, I got a lot of attention from men. Now no one notices me.” Coupled with a series of failed relationships, it seemed that she had lost her sense of self-worth.

“On an attractiveness scale of 1-10, I think I’m probably a 7, and you may be an 8” she proclaimed one day. Out of nowhere statements related to her appearance would come and just as quickly recede. They always caught me by surprise so I seldom gave much thought or response to them, but later I could see that it was something that was eating at her.

Menopause took a cruel toll on her, which was likely partly due to her fear of growing older. She once told me that a woman in her 20’s elatedly exclaimed how much she could learn from a crone like Serena. What was given as a compliment was considered an insult.

Once upon a time it would have been a compliment. Elder women, grandmothers, and crones played an important role in the community. Indeed, they have a great deal to teach the younger generations. It is evident in many societies that this role is not being fulfilled today. If women obsess on retaining youth rather than embracing the role of an elder, who will provide guidance and leadership?

It’s understandable, my friend’s fear of growing old, in a society where aging women are often passed up in favor of their younger counterparts. In conversation with a woman about this issue a few days ago, she told me that one of her clients said her husband, bag in hand standing at the front door, said he was leaving her for a younger woman. He gave no warning, offered no explanation, there was no conversation.

Women fear growing older because they fear not being loved. Not being worthy of love. The multi-billion dollar beauty industry sends women this message. Cover the gray, botox the wrinkles, hide signs of growing older with anti-aging creams, lotions and potions. The message is clear: we don’t like the way you look, please do something about it so that your appearance is more acceptable to the world.

There were a few other pieces to the puzzle too. Serena was childless and on one occasion told me she’d have no one to care for her when she grew old. In her younger years she traveled the world extensively with no time to settle down and raise a family. She said she always thought she’d have time for that later and when later came it was too late.

Lack of her own family, and the issue of finances, suddenly became concerns for her when menopause consumed her energy and motivation. When I met her five years earlier she was carefree, always wildly laughing and in love with life. It was the two years preceding her death that I watched her slowly stop participating in it. She was overwhelmed by it. Completely overwhelmed by every facet of her life.

So when the cancer came, and plopped itself onto her vulva, and she was told the only solution was to cut it away, to basically dissect her femaleness, it consumed her with fear. I think she sensed something had invaded her body long before the cancer presented itself, but like her pending death, she tried to deny it, wish it away. It was a long time before she would admit that she had cancer to anyone. Heavily influenced by the film “The Secret”, she told me talking about the cancer would give it power, make it proliferate. She visited psychic after psychic trying to comprehend why she had been stricken. While none could provide her with that insight, there was an interesting phenomenon. Most all of them said the same thing – that she was blocking healing.

As I watched her wither away and go back to the place where we all come from, I pondered the paradox. She had stopped participating in her life, but once she realized she was dying she fiercely clung to it, denying the seriousness of her condition, refusing to believe she was dying. One of her doctors said she couldn’t figure out why someone with Serena’s sense of spirituality was not going into death with grace, why she was fighting it.

She fought because she wanted to live, but she wanted her old (younger) self back. Her vitality, her passion, her joie de vivre. She worked hard to get it back refusing surgery, opting for less invasive therapies. This resulted in exhausting battles with some of her friends who were furious that she would not submit to the surgery and essentially allow herself to be castrated. They could not understand why she would not acquiesce and settle for a life less than the one she had already resigned herself from.

What made my friend beautiful was her spirit – it shone through in the brightness of her eyes when she smiled. The way she attracted people to her with her generous, gregarious nature, she made look effortless. She cared about people. She had once told me that she wanted to return a bodhisattva to help suffering beings. Maybe she’s back doing that now; the earthly plane is in desperate need. I hope she starts with the cancer of a misogynist mindset that undermines the wisdom of women in favor of their physical appearance. That she helps young girls understand that their beauty is in their consciousness, their dreams, in their compassion. So that they will not ever feel the desire to purge anything from their body but the lies that belittle and scar them for being female.
